According to the National Coffee Association, the percentage of Americans who drink iced coffee beverages increased from 30 percent in 2020 to 39 percent in 2021. Following the popularity of cappuccinos and mocha lattes, consumers are discovering that coffee is just as tasty - and even more refreshing - when served cold.
Beverages such as iced vanilla mocha, iced rum coffee and iced latte are easy to make at home. Here are some tips for refreshing iced coffee drinks.
* Don't let your beverage become watered down. Cool your favorite coffee beverage with ice cubes made from fresh-brewed coffee instead of water.
* Use a machine that produces a high quality coffee or espresso. For example, grinds coffee beans right before brewing and allows you to control the strength of your coffee.
* Be creative. Add a personalized touch to your iced coffee beverages with whipped cream, chocolate shavings, nutmeg or cinnamon.
